Betting

Forecast

Oscar Asche (3/1), Exod'ela (7/2), The Newest One (7/2), Electron Bleu (11/2), Grey Getaway (11/2), Nautical Star (13/2)

Verdict
NAUTICAL STAR looks likely to appreciate this step up in trip on handicap debut and having had wind surgery since his most recent start he can register his first victory with the forecast underfoot conditions also likely to suit. Electron Bleu should have no issues dropping slightly in distance and he can take second spot ahead of Grey Getaway who wears cheekpieces for the first time and has the services of a useful conditional jockey on his first attempt at this distance.
  1. Nautical Star
  2. Electron Bleu
  3. Grey Getaway
